Hi Andy.

I had a station on 87.8 around the same time with loud modulation playing music and talk. Eventually a PI code of F688 popped up. It turned out to be Nea Radio Selbu/Tydal from Forbordsfjellet 2 which is listed as just 66 watts! It was in & out here for at least 10 minutes.
Good DX.

I thought FM had been turned off in favour of DAB in Norway which made it a rare? catch.

The main high-power txes are switching off but low-powered locals will remain for the foreseeable future AFAIK.
Good DX.

I believe there are still some high powered Norwegian TXs in the north of the country on air at the mo. IIRC the next batch to be switched off are going off this Sept.
